“Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off.” (Romans 11:22, NKJV)
Judgment or just “Mother Nature”? The hand of God or “global warming”? God or Satan?
Many opinions, many voices, many on both sides trying to tell us what is going on. Who are you to believe? Should you fear the Lord, in reverence and awe, or should you fear the devil, who always attempts to imitate his Creator? Which is it? Or rather, who is it?
As a believer in the Lord Jesus, Yeshua, I must look to the Written Word, the Bible, the Torah, the Tanakh, to find the answers. Even with all the prophetic voices giving what may seem to be conflicting declarations at times, discernment and clarity can be achieved and known. God Himself has spoken, and written it down. We need not be as those who have no understanding. We can, and must, know the will of the Lord and what He is doing in our times. For these are indeed the end of days, the end of this time, the pre-lude to what is yet to come.
How do I know? Because His very Word tells me so. Yes, “the Bible tells me so.”
Who was the one who made the following occur? God or Satan? The answer is written by God Himself, as these historical events happened and were recorded. (Red emphasis mine for emphasis!)
- “Then I myself will bring the flood of water over the earth to destroy from under heaven every living thing that breathes; everything on earth will be destroyed. But I will establish my covenant with you; you will come into the ark, you, your sons, your wife and your sons’ wives with you.” Genesis 6:17-18 (Complete Jewish Bible)
- “Lot lifted up his eyes and saw all the valley of the Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere — this was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.” Genesis 13:10 (NASU)
- ‘I sent Moshe and Aharon, I inflicted plagues on Egypt in accordance with what I did among them, and afterwards I brought you out.” Joshua 24:5-6 (CJB)
- And even the Lord’s servants had His power granted to them: “And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty.” 2 Kings 1:10 (KJV)
And the entire Book of Revelation, as Jesus Himself told to John, isn’t a make-believe story or a book of images to allow us to make up our own fascinations and metaphors. It is real, and will really happen.
Talk about watching a reality show – this is the big one.
Many living today will see it, right before their very eyes. It doesn’t take a brain scientist to figure out what the Lord is clearly saying. (It does take a fool to say it is just global warming, or just “the same old same old”.)
Is God a good God? Yes He is! Does God love all of mankind? Yes He does! He sent His Only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach, to save all who will come to Him, repent, and receive His eternal salvation for their spirit, soul and body.
Will God judge sinners? Yes He will. He cannot and will not allow evil, unrighteousness, death and destruction to continue on forever without judgment. Those who refuse to repent and believe – judgment is coming. It is coming even now upon earth.
These hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, signs in the heavens…ALL are from the Lord, Creator of heaven and earth. They are His attempt to get mankind to come to Him, call on His name, and receive eternal salvation before they face eternal hell, separated forever apart from Him.
The trumpet is being blown. The shofar has sounded. The angels have been released to do their assigned tasks, to help bring in the harvest.
Do not be deceived and think we can go on living, doing our own thing, believing in the lies and deception that the Lord has no say in it. He does. He is clearly speaking – loud and very clear.
And we must do our part in sharing His Good News to all who have ears to hear. Before it is too late.
Shalom and ahava (peace and love in Hebrew).
